You know. Were worth the help there is such an amazing solution to these things have a seat haven't seen you don't need anymore we give people all those things all the time in the right so you know I. As someone did that you know has a big. You know heart of this sort of thing it never gets old and I mean never ever gets old. Watching these people extend their lives changed their lives.

From personal experience and document my positions and and knowing other people that are done diabetes now is like it epidemic proportions. I recently read somewhere and I can't study Euronext chairman of the world was but it was it was the it was a good article was talking about that adults in America because 45 plus wouldn't want him to either have a diagnosis. Thank you dive there who diagnosed type two diabetic right have some form of undiagnosed. Type two diabetes and look you know. It's one of those things where when these these these people get it's it's added that it's out there it's bad but at least people get this probably goes to their doctor meanwhile the times the test today when sea level. You were there with that. Met performance usually the first in data they get you to that over the wounded right and insulin scum and after that and it you know. The help there is is is not.

Deputies have such great partner bowers. But I want to share a little bit inside that you're not gonna hear any of the commercials or anything we talk about with our marketing in. And this is something that I think might mean something to some people come and you'll hear the owner of our company earnings Bridget. Trammell she's an amazing woman she often says that our corporate meetings that are or Martinis but that the help their beliefs or not. Is is actually we say that we are a ministry disguised as a business now here is what I mean by that. We hope so we declines across so many of our markets. Were able to give so much back we do a lot of things for the kids in not just this community but we also built this part of a missionary trip. Learning educate and a learning center in Guatemala had butchered the name of the city but try to progress and if that happens down there and we're helping teach families. How to use proper nutrition how to lead by the health their principles. And we're educating them is like this these places to Third World countries they have the resources they need around them. Just don't know how to use them right so that's just one example I mean we're partnering up with the lions gate to do some of the kids summer camps I mean it's been these things you don't really hear about that much does that help there does the behind the scenes. But I could make me more proud as the executive marketing director to to help facilitate some of that things that. While what an awesome I mean here it here at ths this Friday at the and it's so impressive what an amazing job in a drain millions of dollars raised over the years and -- we are so blessed you all have done such an awesome job without the help they're still happy to be part well and I've said.

While we are going shopping for the hand held vein finder you know how Lotta people. Feel about needles and youngsters. Perhaps even more self. Now when it went needle comes into view they immediately start cry or or or get them panicky and no wonder because they're afraid. That did a stick with a needle is gonna hurt well when the nurse or the doctor. Uses a hand held main finder it is a substantially easier process because. You know how small some of these youngsters arms are when they're trying to find a vein to insert a needle. For whatever treatment it is they may need. When they have a hand held things minor they can go right to the vein. Find it immediately and it becomes a substantially easier process. It is expensive they cost over 6700. Dollars won't you help us by one. Just call 8777195437. Or tax. GH asked a 51555. Only fifteen dollars a month to become a miracle maker or whatever one time donation you care to make. 429 here on the bunny match or take a break with the news at the bottom of the hour. When we come back on the other side. I'm gonna share with you some stories from some of the people whose. Who have benefited. From the dollars that you have provided over the years here radio found. Be right back here on WORG. We're gonna have to get wet and here because we are running out of time in this hour it's 43723. Before five here on the mound in action this is our number two. It is day one of our eleventh annual GA just. Children's Hospital radio. Now I can sit here and by the way and that you read the phone number again to become a miracle maker for only fifteen dollars a month or make whatever. One time donation you feel comfortable at 8777195437. 8777195437. I can sit here and I can talk all day and I and I did in the first hour of the program. About the necessity of having these hand held a finder's for the doctors and the nurses to use and how many of us. Have a completely understandable. Aversion to needles you see sharp object come in her direction. You heard natural rate action just to try and avoid it but it's a necessity. For the treatments that all these youngsters have to undergo. That they have to have various injections of various intravenous treatments. And so this is where the hand held vein finder comes in now it's not she. It costs over 6700. Dollars but boy does it ever pay for itself in the work that it does. We need to win as they say when the rubber meets the road. We know the nurse or the doctor needs to use it and case in point. And I am welcoming into are makeshift studio here in the lobby of Children's Hospital. Ian and and now I'm sorry Brett and ginger cash and their boys Landon cash welcome you guys good to have you here they keep. Now Linda and I guess this is this has kind of been a home away from home for you had that here at Children's Hospital. You know now. Brent tell us a little bit about. How when did not came to be a a frequent visitor. Here it does at Children's Hospital. Well last may Landon had done. This he wasn't sleeping in real good thrown up in the middle deny them and just kind of be in week. Didn't feel real well and I thought it was a little bit of Osama a it's kind of look for the upset stomach but lingered the end flew bloggers something like that now of course like that of the year this. The data he ended up in the hospital looks on you're not going to be able to get stronger to you story this is that the thing that's. So we're just gonna take you to the doctor and let you let's find out what's wrong so we go to good idea to Duluth. Urgent care center and they tried to get and I think. Each arm it's what you promise take him to the Viet he and we did. And then nursed Mike was able to get this I'd be started. The first drop which was great to get some fluids in him and he ended up being diagnosed with atypical HUS. Genetic. He abnormality where his immune system will attack Israel blitzes and they detected in these kids. So we spent ten days in the children's hospital and while and nursed my ex IV stayed in there for attendance and so that was a little miracle from. With that can help yourself you bet but Landon had to have his blood checked every three hours so they would come in every day. For ten days every three hours of prick his finger and now the treatment were NC. Medicine also layers that he takes intravenously some new every two weeks over to the children's and Houston. So we know firsthand. In a I'm 43 years old I don't like it shots at him like in blood drawn -- neither I'm right there where the you know if somebody comes at me with a needle I'm gonna do my best at dodger. And the you've got a seven year old Aaron he'd land and say now. And they're able to put that. The bank underwrote them and show him the things that kind of talked him through what's going all right because what's the worst part is that the needle stick landowners visit. Wondered what's gonna. Less than half and I'm it really happen here again everybody scared. Something something that that looks scary. And no we're not really sure what's gonna happen it's that that fear of the unknown. In certain fear of the unknown and his his arms you know he's still growing getting big and strolled sure doesn't have the veins popping out quite yet so it's nice to. If the nurses over the infusion center in the nurses here that opportunity to say here's tonight's big juicy thing right that the candidate you know but the numb and patch on there. And we're able to get in there if things go it's fun to do. Good candidate for us to Atlanta and I've heard that there's a specific room here on the sixth more than hedge your name on and is that right. What we say well you always say I'm with yes the hospital. And there room in ice skating and I. It was really nice I got it live like that room. Of fun. Right. Which echo the hospital with Phil yeah sit down the fifth that there. Really nice. Man. He always say man that was so much fun and it blows my mind that this is coming from a seven year old right get stuck because every hour right. In the hospital in the hospital and he associates that with violent yet and that's the that. 100% is the credit to for the folks here you know it truly is amazing. Men and you guys are a perfect example of just now. Necessary. And it's it's in a way it's mind boggling to me. That's an insurance company will say to a hospital well you know sure that's that's nice you know that would be that's an option. But it's it's not really a necessity. Landon do you think the vein finder. That the nurses use when they stick you would you would you think that's something that is necessary to have. Which you'll nurse Rebecca just poking around in their do you like when when she shows still there's a good juicy we're gonna get them today. Like that and they thinking he hasn't changed in that they deal. Really feel of name yet and they just like they feel pompous I'm sure. You know and no wonder you feel that way because you don't want somebody guessing when they're gonna stick a needle in your arm right. You don't want and again if you want to know exactly where that bank and its. Lennon's a tough guy he had a he only cries you don't cry when he gets stuff but win. They can't find that thing in the first run and then we go to the secondary thing. In that Lyndon won't cooperate the end of the fear and the frustration you can see you share and he sits on my lap just like this when he skip this infusions and that's when it's tough for me yeah right because every parent that denies ever spoken well. In the eleven years that we've been here radio Thon. Would much prefer and would much choose if they had the option whatever their child hands. They would prefer they had it themselves that's a rather than John and then they're able to cut this. Kind of reset things during debate on her back out and say are yours one in the thing in the day and gonna we're gone that's it we're gonna get it and it's it. Just the positive energy that they agree calm him down calmed me down right and let's go to have a net tools that. Necessity. To be able to see here's food in the future but we're gonna end. Without it. His medicine has the three day window trying to you know we can't find it in he's kissed his kidneys start to get attacked yeah certain you know certain. Me not a good thing absolutely. It's it's amazing. We we have opportunities from time to time to go through the hospital we did on Monday we take a tour on Monday and and got to go through everything from the knicks you to. There well all aspects of the Children's Hospital. And it's amazing. But to see how many of the children in it and there and their parents. Are our dependence. On not only the professional skill of the doctors and nurses because that's that's on a par with any of the best hospitals in America. But the level of caring that they have the level of compassion that they bring. Not just for the youngsters as they're treating that they understand that the parents. You know or a big part of this equation as well. That's what stood out to him it is. Fortunately I think what I have has a lot of experience hospitals right. The doctors come in Houston 3045 minutes answering his questions are questions. And to the point where I would they. Hey you you probably need to deal won't because there's other folks in the hospital and we do help to the right but they never made me fuel. We'll Brit we've got to go wicca because they were there as long as we need the nurses the folks that would bring food cake and just everybody and and now the attention to detail to the white boards that they have in the room sort even. You know if if your youngsters been up until 2 o'clock in the morning and the doctor comes in at 6 AM and you just got to sleep. In that that. Share. Beside the youngsters bed and you've been asleep for two hours where they can write on the board anything that they want to pass along to you or any questions you may have. You can leave for them.

A decade ago Katie and Jeremy were really thrilled. When they learned they were pregnant when their son Calvin so it was shocking when they learned that Calvin was born with Down syndrome. Calvin has been treated and GH GHS children's hospital for the past decade. His favorite doctor is is developmental pediatrician. Doctor Desmond Kelly he sees a range of specialist for various health issues and here's some more from them. Turn and her son Calvin as a patient and ths we got a diagnosis of Down syndrome when my son was born my pregnancy with Calvin was. Really uneventful. And so I was really happy being pregnant. Only thing with the pregnancy with him was that he has breached so we had a schedule C sections so we just had in her head that. Today say they were going to you going to cover maybe I had a pediatrician to simply say I think he has fountain room. And you wanna believe it. He has several specialists that he sees he sees a developmental pediatrician and he sees endocrinologist. And he sees it a sleep medicine specialist and also his regular pediatrician is also it children's hospital and in the past he's had other specialists say he's seen your nose and throat specialist and various others. He has probably average you know one doctor's appointment months over the course of his life came with two working parents and things of that nature it's sometimes can be a lot of time off of work a lot of time taken him away from schools would go to doctor's appointments and things of that nature children's hospital of green the health system has always been really good and working with our schedule we get early appointments of the then we can get him back to school we can get. Two words doesn't have a lot of significant health issues but he's just has several little things that are always trying to tweak and through the surgeries he's parent that is one thing I can only say about GH Smith. There pediatrics that we've always been really pleased they have compassion. For the children that they treat and we know they just love Calvin they remember cal when they see Calvin and I feel comfortable. When I take him there in the end I love all my cash even though he has some. Problems with communication. He certainly can get his point across if he Weinstein teen dance he will certainly grab your hands employees to the dance floor. He does not have put aside opponent's body news personality is just infectious at GH. SA has been named wonderful. Experience all of the specialists we love everybody's been very welcoming and they're very patient centered all of the specialists listened to the parents and what we are thoughts on the matter rather than just telling us this is what you have to do so we've had a great experiences we've been down here. Because he's been to so many doctors and sometimes becomes routine for him and so regardless of what doctor he won't he goes deceit he asks for a full assessment where they they check his glands they check his ears and check his nose paycheck just throw it they do do reflex. Jack and a lot times the doctors don't even need to be doing that tore through there to see him for that.
